San Diego native Kayslee was born into a close family where music and dance was an ongoing theme. About her family, Kayslee says, “We’re all a really loud, entertaining family and we’re all singers so we go out to eat and I swear whenever we’re at a restaurant we end up singing some musical theater song!” Having been raised in a musical family, Kayslee hopped up on stage at five and has never looked back. “I love being on stage. I’m not afraid of performing. Some have warned me about going on tour, but to me it sounds like the best thing ever.”
Kayslee says that she has felt a connection to Pink’s music that started when she was eight. “Pink has a bit of an edge to her, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve got a bit of an edge to me too. I have a sassy side.”
After the collapse of her record deal with Hollywood Records, Kayslee found herself in the middle of an internet controversy. “I know I come across in a certain way, and for a while people saw me as a model, but I’ve been really honest. I’m an open book.”
At the age of 21, she released her Girls Night In EP in summer 2012. The EP was produced by Grammy Award-Winner Jack Joseph Puig, at Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood.
